"Kuschel Song" (or "Snuggle Song") is the first hit single released by Schnuffel. Originally published by Jamba! as a ringtone, it was then turned into a song by Sebastian Nussbaum and Andreas Marek-Wendorf. "Kuschel Song" debuted at the top of the German singles chart, staying there for eight weeks. The single was certified Platinum by the BVMI for 300,000 copies sold. After the song went to the top of the Austrian charts and to number two in Switzerland, plans were made to release the song internationally. The single debuted at number seven in Europe. It was released as a Single Premium on 14 March 2008. A "Kuschel Song" collection was released in digital format on 21 March 2008, also featuring the English, French, Spanish and Italian versions.[1] The song was also included on the digital release Häschenparty – Famous 5 (24 October 2008) as the third track.[2] A video of person dressed as Schnuffel "singing" the song also became popular.[3] At the beginning of 2009, Schnuffel received a nomination for the single of the year 2008. Later, in 2013, "Kuschel Song" was chosen by the German TV show Die ultimative Chart Show as the most successful jingle of the new millennium.[4] It is the second track on the album Ich hab' Dich lieb.[5] and Ich hab' Dich lieb Gold Edition.[6] The album Winterwunderland features an acoustic version of the song as the 14th track.
